On 2 October 2018, the Department issued an Official Caution to Karuah East Quarry Pty Ltd (KEQ) for multiple noise exceedances at a single location during noise monitoring in Quarter 1, 2 and 3 of 2018. Restrictions on noise levels generated by proponents are in place to protect the amenity of local residents, with regular monitoring of noise levels required to assist in maintaining compliance. KEQ are proposing to utilise a planned 5 month shut down period (beginning September 2018, for construction of additional fixed plant) to complete further works to mitigate noise emissions. The Department expects approved noise limits to be adhered to and will continue to monitor KEQ.
